  • Data Insights with Python for Beginners

    Starts: 10:00 AM
    Ends: June 8, 2019 - 4:00 PM

    Location: Makerspace Nanaimo, 2221A McGarrigle Rd, Nanaimo, BC V9S 4M4, Canada

    Delivered by  Canada Learning Code - Central Vancouver Island 
    Hosted at Makerspace Nanaimo

    Event Details: https://www.facebook.com/events/327024901293682/

    Why learn Python? Python is a great language for beginners. It’s beautiful and clean-looking syntax means you'll spend less time being confused (it looks sort of like English!), and more time understanding and applying the fundamentals of programming. Python has a wide variety of uses from creating web applications to hardware programming to data analysis and scientific computing.

     In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamental concepts of programming and how you can use this powerful tool to analyze data. You will learn how to read data from a file and extract useful insights for marketing and data analysis.

    By the end of the workshop, you'll know the answers to the following:
    What is programming?
    What is Python used for?
    How do I write and run a python program?
    How can I read & analyze data in a file?

    You'll be introduced to important concepts such as variables, types, conditionals and loops, and learn how to use an IDE to write more code even faster. (Not sure what any of that means? This workshop is perfect for you!)

    Who is this for: Our Ladies Learning Code workshops offer female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.

    Prerequisites:
    None! This workshop is designed for beginners.

    Note: If you do not have a laptop to use during the duration of the workshop, we have a very limited quantity that we can loan out. The option to borrow a laptop will be included in your order form when registering.
